Published : January 2011 by Razorbill
Godspeed was once fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.
It’s been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. Everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed.
But there may be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to act on his vision—no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder learns shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a mystery that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier. Their success—or failure—will determine the fate of the 2,298 passengers aboard Godspeed. But with each step, the journey becomes more perilous, the ship more chaotic, and the love between them more impossible to fight.

Another pretty cover of Across The Universe series! Once again Beth Ravis succeed in taking my breath away. This book is just that AWESOME. Just like the first book Across The Universe, the story is so intense and I found myself holding my breath quite often while reading this book.
Actually I don't know what to write in this review because the word "wonderful" has says it all. The development of the story is very good. So many unexpected happenings happen in this book. The development of the characters especially Elder is good too. Many conflicts happen during his leadership period actually make his character stronger. The love story between him and Amy exists but not too much, which I really like. The best parts are always when both of them solving the clues that leads them to the answer of Godspeed's mystery.
In this book, the "villain" is not easy to guessed. For me it's unpredictable which make it more interesting. Beth Ravis is now one of my favorite dystopian writer. I can't wait for the 3rd book on January 2013. I hope it will be as good as the 2 books before it.
My rating : 5/5
